Study Program: General Management Executive MBA (Executive Education)

When I look back at my time at MCI...

I would say that my studies and time at the MCI were an enrichment from a personal, intellectual and professional perspective. The opportunities given by the exchange with international students as well as the different modules abroad were definitely some of the highlights of the program. All in all, the Executive MBA was a challenge, as being combined with a full time job, but more than worth it.

How did your studies at MCI prepare you for your current job?

My original education was in the scientific/medical field. Therefore, I was lacking knowledge in different business related fields, such as finance, HR and management. The Executive MBA was an excellent preparation for an expanded role in the company. Currently, I work for a global leader in the field of hearing implants where I am responsible for different domains, such as PR, corporate communications, consumer & referral engagement and public/governmental affairs. This would not have been possible without my Executive MBA. The Executive MBA allowed me to enlarge my knowledge, insights and experience in different fields of management and business.

What would you tell someone who is considering studying at MCI?

MCI offers high quality programs with a human touch within a pleasant environment. The Executive MBA gives you the opportunity to combine the advantages of the MCI with a high-level executive program.
